Dreaming of a place that combines bikes, beer, and a caffeine buzz? Well then the Denver Bike Cafe is the place for you. Cafe by day and beer hall by night, the Denver Bike Cafe also offers a menu of bike repair options like a Light Tune-Up or a Basic Overhaul.
This creative combo came to be in November 2011 thanks to the efforts of Peter Roper and Jessica Caouette. Talking about how the business started, Jessica said the inspiration came from “models like this across the country” and it just “made sense to combine the three… the culture was already there.”
Aside from literally being “bike friendly” by helping repair your bikes, the Denver Bike Cafe is also bike friendly in that all its employees bike to work and the shop offers plenty of bike parking for customers. So whether you need a pick-me-up for your bike or yourself, check out the Denver Bike Cafe.
